Bodie – A Light-Filled Studio Family Newborn Session


Today I’m sharing a client session I adore! I was absolutely smitten with these clients. I knew I was going to have a blast with them when mom, Kimberly, made a joke about “everyone” (mainly her husband) behaving during their session.

How cute is their little two year-old, Charlie? I swear, that child had more smiles for me than just about any toddler I’ve ever photographed! Kimberly was concerned that capturing a few special moments with baby Bodie and big brother Charlie might be wishful thinking, but just wait until you see these precious images of proud big brother. Parents, I am not above singing the PJ Masks theme song to elicit such grins from your sweet kiddos!

Although this was my first time working with this family, they are some of my new favorite Looking Up Photography clients. I hope to have more fun with this family in the future, for family photo sessions!

I’ll start with the details, like our beautiful Greenwich, Connecticut studio location. Perfectly minimal, just as mom requested! Some clients want me to bring out all the props. While my prop catalog is made up of sweet, minimal accessories, this mother wanted to keep their session as simple and intimate as possible. I’m so glad that, as new clients referred to me by past clients through a Facebook group for moms, this family absolutely trusted me as a professional. All the neutral hues the studio shows off bring an ethereal element to the images from this newborn family session. I love the pretty and unique textures brought out in the white blankets and wraps I chose for these newborn session photos. So delightful! 

The classic wardrobe selections really made the family’s expressions pop, expressing such joy together!

I always have fun playing in the studio with my families. I’d love to see you for a newborn session, too!
